From visionary director Claire McCarthy comes OPHELIA, a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice.

Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) takes center stage as Queen Gertrude’s (Naomi Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (George MacKay) and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within and Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life in order to protect a very dangerous secret.

This remarkable retelling of Hamlet promises to charm fans of the seminal work and newcomers alike, as it manages to infuse a fresh and empowering perspective into one of the most renowned stories of all time. Adapting Lisa Klein’s eponymous novel, director Claire McCarthy crafts an intricate historical world that exudes romance, deception, and spirit. Featuring a stellar British cast including Tom Felton and Clive Owen, OPHELIA plucks its titular character from literary slumber and firmly places her centre stage, where she belongs.

'This vigorous, colourful and clever melodrama smartly rethinks both the play and the character.' - The Hollywood Reporter
